Job 26:8 Parallel
CommentaryJob 26:8 Parallel Commentaries
LibraryThat the Self-Existent Being must be All-Powerful.
The self-existent being, the supreme cause of all things, must of necessity have infinite power.--This proposition is evident, and undeniable. For since nothing (as has been already proved,) can possibly be self-existent, besides himself; and consequently all things in the universe were made by him, and are entirely dependent upon him; and all the powers of all things are derived from him, and must therefore be perfectly subject and subordinate to him; it is manifest that nothing can make any difficulty …
Samuel Clarke—A Discourse Concerning the Being and Attributes of God
Use to be Made of the Doctrine of Providence.
"Seek First the Kingdom of God," &C.
The Host of Heaven and of Earth.
He loads the clouds with moisture, and they flash with his lightning.
He covers the heavens with clouds, provides rain for the earth, and makes the grass grow in mountain pastures.
Who but God goes up to heaven and comes back down? Who holds the wind in his fists? Who wraps up the oceans in his cloak? Who has created the whole wide world? What is his name--and his son's name? Tell me if you know!
